I’m Craig and I live in Bury with my wife Claire, our daughter Poppy and our very special Labrador Golden Retriever cross, Thea. I provide a professional dog walking service in Middleton and surrounding areas.
Me and my dogs
I’ve always been a huge dog lover but when Claire developed a visual impairment, Thea came to us as her guide dog. She has proven to be an absolute lifeline for Claire and has become an invaluable member of our family.
When she is not working to help Claire, Thea is just like any other family pet and is a much-loved pampered pooch – and spoilt rotten. We couldn’t imagine life without her!
My Digs for Dogs business
I spent over 20 years working in the wall and floor tile industry but as Claire’s sight deteriorated, I made the decision to spend more time closer to home helping around the house and caring for our daughter. The opportunity to join the Digs for Dogs team came along at just the right time, giving me the chance to be more hands-on at home while enjoying a healthy outdoor life doing something I love – walking dogs.
As a dog owner myself, I know that for your dog to stay healthy and happy, a daily walk is essential. I understand how difficult it can be to find the right care for your precious pooch while you are working during the day
All of the dogs I walk are always truly loved and cared for and I do everything I can to find out about your dog’s individual needs to plan the perfect walking schedule. Some dogs love to walk in a pack, racing around in the fresh air with their doggy friends – whereas some dogs require the extra attention of a solo walk.
Whichever best suits your pooch, I will make sure they have plenty of exercise and plenty of fun and then I will return them warm, dry, and ready for a snooze.
Please give me a call on 07932 784360 and I’ll get straight to work.
I operate dog walking rounds in Middleton, I try to get the dogs out in a variety of areas such as; Alkrington Wood, Hopwood Wood, Chadderton Hall Park, Crompton Moor, Healey Dell, Tandle Hill or Greenbooth Reservoir

I can highly recommend the team at Digs for dogs. They have supplied a dog walking services for our two English Springer Spaniels when we have been on holiday for the past 3 years. They are friendly and professional and nothing is too much trouble. They are also very reasonable price wise. Thanks to the whole Digs for Dogs team, you do a great job!
We would just like to say how pleased we are with Digs for Dog’s dog walking services. They have been brilliant with keeping up Alfie's training, and adapting to any special requests we had when our dog wasn’t very well recently. They are reliable and understand our dogs needs (which is needed with our energetic 1 year old!). We couldn’t recommend them highly enough!
Fantastic dog walking service from Digs For Dogs! For two days they have looked after our 4 month old puppy Lola - who is a handful to say the least! They walked her, looked after her in her home and also did a bit of training with her and she's come back a much more obedient puppy! She also had the chance to socialise with other dogs and learn to be away from home! We have one tired puppy now! Thank you so much! We will definitely use the service again and recommend you to others!
